PeaZip 6.3.0, Looks Like Winrar For Ubuntu 16.04, Ubuntu 16.10 and Linux Mint 18

PeaZip is a cross-platform graphical application that has been designed to act as an archiving utility based on the 7-Zip open source file archiver. It handles mainstream archive formats and works on Linux and Windows operating systems.

Supports a wide range of archive types

The application supports and allows users to create a wide range of archive types, including 7Z, ARC, BZ2, GZ, *PAQ, PEA, QUAD/BALZ, TAR, UPX, WIM, XZ, and ZIP. Additionally, it can extract over 50 archive types, including ACE, ARJ, CAB, DMG, ISO, LHA, RAR, UDF, ZIPX, and much more.

What's new in PeaZip 6.3.0

  • CODE:
  • Improved DPI awareness
  • New command line directive "-peaziplanguage" to programmatically change application's localization
  • second parameter is the name of the localization file, proper localization directory "lang" is resolved by the program
  • example: peazip.exe -peaziplanguage it.txt
  • please note if other instances of PeaZip are open, they will overwrite language in configuration when they close
  • Added hamburger menu button in tabs bar to provide alternative access to archiving/extraction context menu
  • Improved archive creation screen
  • Added installer-mode sfx modules for 7z (advanced options tab)
  • Replicated archiving action options in main options page (7z/p7zip supported types)
  • Provided new update options: update only items already in archive (ignore extra items on disk), and synchronize archive with content on disk (remove items from archive if removed from disk)
  • Improved Windows installer
  • Archiving, extraction, browsing, and tools groups are now divided by separators for ease of use
  • "CRC, hash and file tools" (PeaUtils) was added as default entry
  • Localization can now be set from installer

Easy to use GUI

Its easy-to-use GUI (Graphical User Interface) provides users with drag & drop support and context menu integration, strong encryption, duplicate finder, ability to save backup scripts and high speed compression ratios.

Features at a glance

Another interesting feature is the ability to create, convert and extract multiple archives at once, which makes this application a real candidate for the best archiving utility on UNIX/Linux operating systems. Creating self-extracting archives, splitting and joining files, calculating hashes, exporting job definitions as scripts, and finding duplicate files is also possible with this program.

Supports a wide range of encryption technologies

We should also mention the fact that PeaZip features strong encryption with two factor authentication, secure deletion of archives, an encrypted password manager, and decrypts AES encrypted PKZip files. The application supports AES256 encryption for 7-Zip archives, ZipCrypto and WinZip AES256 AE encryption for ZIP archives, FreeARC AES256, Twofish256, Blowfish and Serpent256 encryption for ARC archives, and AES256 EAX authenticated encryption for PEA archives.
